Temping as a Quality Inspector for a large plastic and foam materials company. Toy Soldier Painter, semi-retired from Reenacting the US Civil War and American Revolution. Lovely wife and one grown son and a nearly grown daughter.
There's really little in plastic for French troops of the Franco-Prussian War. I have drafted some Civil War and British Colonial Troops by Marksmen, Replicants, and Armies In Plastic with some conversion work for passable troops to "play" with. Be sure to click on the pictures for larger versions.
